Remembering Tom Miller
NTU Sport are saddened to hear about the passing of Tom Miller. Tom was an incredibly important part of NTU Sport, and was a highly regarded, talented and professional athlete. Tom was 1st XV Captain for NTU Rugby Union and will be sorely missed by team mates and NTU Sport colleagues.
NTU Sport, Head of Rugby Union, David Ross commented:
“Tom epitomized what the game of rugby union means not only by the way he trained and played, but also how he loved the team work, camaraderie and the values of the game off the pitch. Tom was the very definition of the phrase ‘lead by example’, which allowed those who played with him to raise their standards of play and training.
Tom was loved by all who knew him and his infectious smile and enthusiasm for life shone through in everything that he did. A keen golfer and sports fan, Tom’s passion for sport and wellbeing was evident from his very first day at university.
Tom was an outstanding role model and leader within our rugby programme and will be sadly missed by his rugby brothers and the wider sporting community.”
Tom was also an ambassador for the OddBalls Foundation, who work to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer across the UK. A JustGiving page has been set up in Tom's memory, which has already raised more than £33,000, all funds raised will go to the OddBalls Foundation.
